We offer this assortment of native Chestnuts, Black Walnuts, American Native Pecans, and Hickory nuts for your authentic traditional dishes this holiday season. The American Chestnuts, Native Pecans, and Shagbark Hickory nuts are all included on the Slow Foods Ark of Taste!
These indigenous nuts from Chestnut, Hickory, Pecan and Walnut trees have long been neglected in favor of commercial nut crops like English walnuts. With the renewed interest in local foods, people are rediscovering these flavorful nuts that were a staple food for Native Americans for millenia.
The Chestnuts -- a prominent part of the fall diet in America until a blight introduced in 1904 killed most of the native trees -- are both wild-harvested from our woods, and cultivated in our fruit and nut grove. The Hickory and Black Walnut trees have been planted all over our farm and woods by the industrious squirrels (we give them corm in exchange when we take their nuts!).
You may order the Native Nuts Mix, or customize your mixture by ordering the individual varieties.
These nuts come hulled but in the shell. We hope you will enjoy them!
Our garden seeds, yarns, and nuts make perfect gifts in synergy with our shared goals of environmental protection, sustainability, and food security.
